Is it summer yet? It might not feel like it quite yet but those hot and hazy days are just around the corner. And with any luck some of that time will be spent on a warm dock, lake breezes sweeping in and some summer reading close at hand. People say that once they’ve visited Africa, it gets them in their soul. I can’t help but think that that you don’t need to travel quite that far. Northern Ontario has a majestic beauty all it’s own. Simple living on the lake is one of life’s true pleasures. The wind, wood, waves and nature are an unbeatable combination. Wherever your dock (or deck) happens to be, keep it simple with unobstructed views, inviting seating, open windows and fabrics and materials that can take a little rough and tumble. It’s no fun to always be worrying about the sofa. And this season is all about fun. To barefoot days in your future. If you’re not quite ready to begin your summer adventures and are still in the city, Luminato drops this weekend and never disappoints.
